Xiaomi has established a reputation as a high-quality manufacturer covering the middle-range. With the Mi Max 3, Xiaomi has proven they’re up to the task. While Xiaomi may not have the brand recognition of Samsung, it does have high standards and offers amazing value for money. The Mi Max 3 is a good example of what you can expect from Xiaomi – it’s a great mid-range phone “Phablet”.
The design and display
First thing’s first — the Xiaomi Mi Max 3’s absolutely enormous display. It’s a 6.9-inch IPS LCD running a 2,160 x 1,080-pixel resolution in an 18:9 resolution. That gives it a pixels-per-inch measurement of 350, making it far from one of the sharpest phones we’ve ever seen, but it should be clear enough for most.
As you might expect, the body is big too, and the Mi Max 3 towers over even the Galaxy Note 8 by over half an inch in height — but thanks to a bezel-less design, it’s not quite approaching small tablet size in footprint. Slim bezels run up the sides of the phone, leading into a fairly slim forehead and chin. Not the slimmest we’ve seen, but not terrible for a midrange phone. The front-facing selfie camera can be found at the top, along with the phone’s earpiece. You’ll find a headphone jack at the top of the device, and a USB-C port at the bottom.
Hardware, Software and Performance
Xiaomi Mi Max 3 comes with a mid-range hardware that can guarantee excellent performance in all areas of use. The processor is a Snapdragon 636 octa-core 1.8 GHz flanked by a video card Adreno 509 and 4 GB of RAM. The internal memory is 64 GB expandable via microSD memory. Of note also the existence of the version with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory.
As you can imagine, a large, bright screen tends to consume power. And an 8 core processor and GPU can burn up their fair share, too. That’s why a high capacity battery is important, and the Mi Max 3’s 5500mAh battery does not disappoint. It packs enough power for a day of high-intensity use for most users, it’s enough to last for 2 days.
You’ll find a dual-lens system installed around the back, with a 12-megapixel main lens armed with an f/1.9 aperture. The secondary lens is just 5 megapixels, and will be used primarily for depth-sensing in portrait shots. The Mi Max 3 will apparently also be able to capture 4K video at 30 frames per second, and slow motion video at 120 frames per second, but only at 720p. The selfie shooter around the front will be an 8-megapixel lens with an f/1.7 aperture.
